Do you know any datasets that contain animals and their accurate classifications? I am looking for any dataset that categorizes animals.

For example:

  • a dataset with insects, with an image of an insect and its scientific name as label
  • a dataset with dogs of different breeds, their scientific names and images.
  • a dataset with Myriapodes (like centipedes or millipedes), images and their names as labels
  • mammals
  • birds
  • reptiles
  • ...

Generally, I am looking for datasets of all animals worldwide, classified as good as possible.

I would very much appreciate it!

Here a list of possible classes (superclasses, groups, etc.).

Unfortunately, a single dataset with all animals does not seem to exist (perhaps you can make one :D ), but there are plenty of datasets with a subset of animal species. Here are a few I can think of:


Check out this Kaggle competition for a dataset on DOG breed.
